Everyday makeup staples

In the past I was a bit of a makeup hoarder. Okay, not a bit and not even in the past. I just love makeup products! Especially lipsticks and eyeshadow, because those does have the most beautiful colors. Even though I don’t use eyeshadows everyday, I prefer to have a lot of different options for the days I want to wear it. Lipstick is a product I do use every single day and it’s one of my favorite products to finish my look with. For my everyday makeup look I use most of the times the same products, but with a different lip color everyday. Do you want to know what I use on a daily basis? Most of the products are really affordable! Continue Reading

Citytrips Europe

What am I planning to do on my Europe roadtrip?

Because of the fact I didn’t plan anything for this summer and of the fact my boyfriend is away for two weeks, I really wanted to do something with my time. Now as you know, I love to travel, so I decided to search for something on a budget. Plane tickets are quite expensive in peak season, so I searched for an alternative and found a bus company which travels through Europe. The bus tickets are really cheap and all the way to Luxembourg I only pay €127,-. In Luxembourg I will meet my boyfriend and we have the last couple of days together in Luxembourg and Bruxelles. So what am I planning to do and to see on my Europe roadtrip?

So it’s easy for me to decide what I want to do, if I have ‘nothing’ to do. After this trip I will tell you what I did in each city and what I recommend to do if you are there.

My trip starts tomorrow, so if you want to be up-to-date about my trip, please follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’ll update as much as possible, so you get a great impression of the cities! Do you have other recommendations for things to do or to see in those cities?

How much does one week in Poland costs?

As a student you have to be careful with your money. I work already 6,5 years in a supermarket to earn some money to do great things instead of only paying my study. As you all know I love to travel, so the great thing I do with my self-earned money is traveling. People near me don’t understand how I can afford traveling that much as I’m doing. First of all it’s the will power to safe a lot of money, but second of all is searching all the time for the best travel deals. When I found a great deal and I’m able to travel that moment, I will take it. That’s also what I did with my trip to Poland. I found a great deal at the Ryanair website and I couldn’t resist it. In this post I’m going to tell you how much one week Poland costs. Of course you can make it as expensive as you want, but for me it’s a great challenge to get it as cheap as possible.

New in: a carry-on suitcase

For years I had to borrow a suitcase from my boyfriend’s father. Last year I bought a backpack, because carrying a suitcase to Indonesia and Australia wasn’t a option for me. Now the time has come that I bought my first suitcase. Not a big suitcase, but just a small carry-on suitcase. Next week I’m going to Poland and I take only handlugage with me. So I needed a suitcase. I could borrow it again from my ‘father in law’ (we’re not married), but I didn’t want to ask it again. Now the time has come that I needed to buy one for myself, so I don’t have to depend on someone everytime I travel. Continue Reading
